    Status: Married, alive, annoyed

    Diplomacy : 7+5+2+1+1+2-1-1 = 16

    You know how to talk and to conduct yourself. You can interact with pretty much everyone without offending them. If it is on purpose however...

    You know enough to maintain your estate easily.

    Intrigue : 10+5+9+1+2+2+1= 30

    Martial : 6+5+2+2+1+2+2= 20

    You are no slouch when it comes to combat, and tactics, even though professionals can beat you, it won't be without cost.

    Learning :10+5+2+1+1+2+2+6+1 =30

    You are well read, and leverage it to find solutions to problems most people wouldn't notice exist. Your prowess with potions is second to none.

    You are rather powerful, and know a lot about arcane subjects, however, against people like Dumbledore, Voldemort or you own daughter, you will be found wanting.

    Social links:

    An old friend you met in a pureblood function. She's rather smart and quick witted, even though she seems to hate your wife and daughter with the intensity of a thousand suns. A pureblood supremacist, you get along pretty well as long as you don't mention you are the biggest muggleborn employer of the Isles.

    SL 3: Toujours pur: May call on the Blacks to help you, as long as it doesn't cost money, no favor owned.
    SL 6: Bound in darkness: Walburga opened up the Black library to you, +15 to research rolls.
    0/8 RP to next level
    An eager young man who seems to have misunderstood your employing muggleborns as you showing them their rightful place under a proper wizard. You haven't bothered to correct him.After the fall of Lord Voldemort, he appreciates your tentative to contact him, even moreso since you aren't a member of the cause. However, the fall of the Terrorist and the rapid changes of the world are chipping away at his beliefs, whoch, far from hindering him, in contrary gave him even more opportunities.

    SL3: Goldfinger: +10 to Stewardship action rolls
    9/12 RP to next level, 20 RP banked until she recovers ( 10 saving her, 10 recovery actions)
    A brilliant witch, with a temper that burns twice as bright. Life wasn't kind to her, she lost her first friend at the teeth of Remus Lupin, her family to Voldemort, and her last friend to the Overlord. As a muggleborn, due to the societal conventions, she was treated almost like a pariah and her seeking out Dace was her last gambit, which paid. Despite her atitude, she cares a lot for him, their relationship as master-apprentice being the last meaningful link to the living that she has.
    SL 3: The Apprentice: Your experience as a teacher paid dividends, +10 to teaching rolls.
    3/8 RP to next level
    Your granddaughter, looks older than she is. You've only begun to interact with her and she seems to like you well enough, even if in her mind, she seems to consider Oliver and Narcissa her true parents.

    SL3: Rosy cheeks :Your granddaughter is cute. You know it, she knows it, and the world is about to learn it. In case of social roll failure, Scáthach can roll one more in your stead if in your party.
    Your wife, best friend and confidante, all rolled in one. If the both of you were able to feel any romantic love, she probably would be 'The One' for you. In any case, you trust her absolutely, and despite all the posturing, so does she. For some reason, people see to think you don't get along but are too proud to divorce. In more modern terms however, your relationship could be summed up as 'vitriolic best buds' with a dash of 'friends with benefits'

    SL3: Theater lessons: +10 to acting rolls.
    SL6: Contacts: Your wife being who she is, she got you a list of names. You will always find somebody for any need you have.
    SL9: Network. Remember that list of contacts? Well, she somehow swindled them into becoming an informan network. Rumor mill opened, no maintainance required.
    SL10: The Jewels of Elizabeth : Once a year, Elizabeth will send you a gem. This gem will range from rare to legendary, and will have unusual properties and uses.
    Enigmatic (read obsessed) wandmaker.
    0/4 RP to next level
    0/2 RP to next level
    0/8 RP to next level.

    Leader of the Order faction, Head of the Auror Office. A competent man, his relation with Dace is a rather respectuous one, even if laced with no small amount of exasperation.

    OOC Questions in reserve : 1 (Biigoh)

    So! Once upon a time, in a merry land where poneys were prancing, sheeps were flocking and little birds were singing in the air, everything was well and fine, until one day, a dark wizard decided he wanted to experiment. As one could expect, this ended up badly for everyone involved. Enters a very nasty, brutal, cunning, and all other sorts of evil adjectives that can be rattached to an Evil man.

    This man called himself, The Overlord.

    This Overlord was minding his own business, terrorizing villages and smiting the forces of Good when he noticed strange explosions in his backyard an Did Not Approve. One unholy smiting and massive amounts of gratuitious violence later, he had a brand new toy that he decided to name The Hive, which created brown skinned, knife eared, malevolent abominations made up of a weird soul slurry. Not one to refuse free workers, The Overlord put his newly baptized Browns to work with extreme efficiency.

    Of course, people objected, and mad scientists don't come in only one breed. As such, a particularly imprudent brown got himself captured and experimented on by some guy named Salazar (He's not really important), who noticed that due to their nature, they were unstable and prone to changes. Since that guy was on the definitely more morally ambiguous side of the spectrum after being kicked out of his castle, he decided to do SCIENCE! with it. After laying layers upon layers of charms, activated upon the demise of the current Overlord, Salazar's greatest (and ironically unknown) piece of magic took effect, changing the Browns into something more...

    Enter the goblins.

    After they appeared, the wizards scratched their heads for a while, because if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, chances are that it is a duck. Therefore, the Magical world ( yes, that includes centaurs, werewolves and unicorns) wasn't really enthused at the idea of keeping those midget killing machines near them and so, after the wizards decided it was too inhuman to simply kill them and be done with it, they led them to montainous zones, where their agressivity and natural penchant towards chaos could be channelled into more constructive projects.

    A few centuries and several wars later, things are at a standstill between the goblins and the rest of the world, each side sizing up the other warily.
    But soon, this will be irrelevant, for you see, Evil always finds a way.
    Roll bonuses: 0
    MP: 0

    I will award roll bonuses for omakes and fanarts and the likes (unlikely to get some, considering I barely even get players) and set it with a piggy bank system. Each time it reaches 100, You get an Miracle Point. People can choose to stockpile their bonuses to create 'personal stockpiles to use on their own, because MP need a vote to be used.

    For example: there's a general stockpile and then, there' ThatOneWeirdo who's a filthy shipper, but a great and prolific artist, who decides that one Ship is for him and wants to dedicate all of his bonuses to make sure to get a crit each time grown up babeh interacts with the other member of the ship.

    Using a MP on a decision will guarantee a crit on the choice it is applied too. In case of Nat 1, it will turn the critfail into a bare success.
